Guided Walks 2020

We are delighted to announce the details of 3 guided walks in 2020!

 

But these come with a warning! In 2019, we had to turn down inquiries for each of our guided walks, they were either sold out or people left it too late and flight costs had become too expensive.

 

So if you want to know more, then contact us now!

 

Our escorted walks are designed with three objectives in mind:

  • Independence – Walk the Camino at a pace that suits you. When you need us, our Group Leader and the group is there for you, but we believe that everyone should experience the Camino for themselves! No rules, no restrictions!
  • Fun! The Camino is vibrant and positive – it’s there to be enjoyed by all those who walk!
  • Value and Service– No Irish operator will match the value and personal touch of Camino Groups!

 

Easter 2020 – Baiona to Santiago

 

This is the last section of the Camino Portugués, so it’s ideal for first-time walkers who want to finish up in Santiago or indeed for anyone who has walked a previous section of the Camino. As Camino sections go, it is moderate in terms of difficulty – well within the compass of any pilgrims!

 

Baiona itself is a beautiful setting from which to set off – its marina overlooked by the impressive Fortaleza. Continue on to Vigo (Galicia’s largest city), the beach at Arcade, the old town of Pontevedra, the thermal springs of Caldas (your accommodation has its own thermal swimming pool!) and the historical Camino town of Padrón.

 

Experience the joy of arriving into Santiago and collect your “Compostela” cert before relaxing and enjoying all that this amazing city has to offer!

June 2020 – St Jean to Los Arcos

 

If you want a Camino experience involving stunning mountain scenery, tasty pintxos in Pamplona, historical buildings, bridges and churches, iconic Camino statues and relaxing old-town plazas, this is your trip!

 

Starting from the beautiful French town of St Jean Pied the Port, your first day sees you pass through the Pyrenees from France into Spain. A challenging day, but an amazing experience!

Continue through the monastery-dominated hamlet of Roncesvalles and the little town of Zubiri before arriving into Pamplona.

 

Climb to the famous Alto del Perdón and continue on to the pretty towns of Puente La Reina and Estella before arriving into Los Arcos. You’ve walked from Basque country towards La Rioja – there’s a food and wine experience there for everyone!

September 2020 – Sarria to Santiago

 

Experience the final section of the Camino Francés, where many people experience the Camino for the first time. If countless thousands of people have made this the most popular section of any Camino route, who are we to argue?

 

Starting up the steps to the Rua Real in Sarria, finish your first day at more iconic steps in Portomarín, high above the dammed waters where once the old town lay. Your walk continues through the rolling countryside of Galicia, passing through farmyards with their horreos – you could almost be at home!

 

Continue through Palas De Rei, Arzúa and Pedrouzo before arriving at the cathedral in Santiago. A free day here allows you to explore this amazing city at your leisure – a beautiful city worth a trip in its own right.
